Following a very successful debut at Spring Internet World 99, Anark

Boulder, CO, April 26, 1999 - Anark Interactive Media, a developer
of innovative and intuitive 3D technology, applications, and
authoring environments, invites web developers of all skill levels to
visit www.anarkmedia.com to experience its newly released Beta
version of Emotion 3D: Web Edition.

process for creating beautiful 3D animations, rollovers buttons,
animated clip art, and effects for the Web. It features Anark's new
procedural animation engine, Animesh, which makes animating 2D or 3D
art as simple as clicking a button. With its highly automated
animation and effects process, and intuitive interface, Emotion 3D
will save both amateur and expert web developers hours of valuable
time. This FREE public Beta is available on Anark's web-site for a
limited time only. Free T-shirts will also be given out each week to
the Beta testers that provide the most valuable input.

Edition at Spring Internet World," said Stephen Collins, Anark
Interactive Media's Marketing Director. "We are confident that our
Beta Testers will have a lot of fun testing this exciting new
application and will benefit greatly from the ability to so easily
create beautiful content for their web sites."

until May 20th, and will be replaced with a 15 day trial version
after the product is released. The full version of Emotion 3D: Web
Edition will ship sometime in May at a special introductory price of
only $69.95. It will include significantly more animation behaviors
